Our ageing population is also putting pressure on our healthcare services and improvements in cancer care mean that more people are living longer with cancer and need ongoing support. While cancer outcomes are certainly improving, we still need to do more.

The aim of the Leeds Cancer Programme is to ‘Transform Cancer Services and Care across the City.’ By delivering four workstreams of high quality work, the programme aims to make significant changes to cancer rates and care in Leeds.

Some of our current projects include:

  • Teledermatology
  • ACE - Accelerate, Coordinate, Evaluate Pathway
  • 28 Day Faster Diagnosis Standard
  • Cancer Care Review
  • Cancer Care Nurse Training Event
